N659, a scenic coastal road in the Netherlands

N659 is a spectacular asphalted road with a length of 14,6km, going through the Oyster dam (‘Oesterdam’), in Tholen, in the southwest of the Netherlands.

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! The oyster culture in Yerseke was saved because of the dams. Also, the dams made sure that the Scheldt-Rhine canal was no longer harmed by the tides.

The road was finished after the construction of this dam -to facilitate the construction of the Oyster dam- in 1986. The Oyster dam is the longest ‘delta work’ with a length of eleven kilometres. By connecting Tholen to South-Beveland, the Zoom lake was created.
